Number of Servings: 6


    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 tablespoon canola oil
    3/4 cup water


The fat really should be lard or at least some kind of solidified fat.


Preheat oven to 500.

Whisk the flour, salt, and baking powder together in a mixing bowl. Mix in the oil in with your fingers until the flour resembles cornmeal. Add the water and mix until the dough comes together; place on a lightly floured surface and knead a few minutes until smooth and elastic. Divide the dough into 6 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball.

Roll out balls to desired thickness and bake in one layer until golden on each side (about 1.5 minutes). Watch oven carefully!

Serving Size: 1 flour tortilla
